Lockdown Catch Up

Reading Time: 2 minutes

What can we say, our hair stylists at Saks in Barnard Castle haven’t been able to get into the salon properly for some time now – so we thought we’d share a little lockdown catch up with our very own Jess and Ann-Elise. They’ve both been keeping busy taking advantage of Barnard Castle’s beautiful countryside, with walks, walks, and more walks.


As we’re sure many of you will agree, Jess thinks this lockdown has been the hardest so far. She says “I feel like I am generally a really positive person but this one has definitely mentally drained me.”

“I’ve tried to stay in touch with my friends and family a lot. Walking has been lots of fun – whatever the weather. Finding routes around Barny that I haven’t done before has been a real adventure!”

And that’s not all Jess has been up to, she’s also found time to do some baking, as well as a little bit of decorating. She continues “Other than keeping myself busy, I’m just counting down the days to be back in the beautiful salon and see everyone again!”


Another firm lover of walking to keep her busy during lockdown is Ann-Elise.

She says “During our third lockdown I’ve tried to keep myself sane by getting back into fitness, going on plenty of walks and focusing on keeping a healthy body and mind (whilst enjoying a little wine every now and again).”

“I’ve also used the time to get a little decorating done at home as well as keeping up to date on new hair trends and techniques, ready to get back to what I love doing most – hair, hair and more hair.

Take in this view – simply stunning.

Everyone can’t wait to be back in the salon again. Scissors at the ready! See you very soon. x
